Mike tunggu Anwar sebelum putus letak jawatan

Reactions: 
kemaskini 7:54pm S Manikavasagam hanya meletakkan jawatan timbalan ketua perhubungan PKR Selangor tetapi mengekalkan anggota Majlis Pimpinan Tertinggi dan ahli parlimen Kapar.

Beliau mengugut meninggalkan parti selepas berdepan masalah dengan kepimpinan kerajaan Selangor yang diketuai oleh ketua perhubungan PKR negeri Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

Bercakap dalam satu sidang media di sebuah hotel di Kuala Lumpur petang ini, Manikavasagam berkata beliau telah menghantar surat peletakkan jawatan itu pagi tadi yang berkuatkuasa serta-merta.

Katanya, beliau bersedia menerima apa-apa bentuk tindakan disiplin daripada PKR yang bermesyuarat malam ini.

"Apa-apa tindakan kepada saya, saya rela. Disingkir daripada parti, (saya) tidak ada masalah kerana saya membela nasib orang yang miskin," katanya, yang sering dipanggil Mike.

Jumaat lalu, Manikavasagam dilaporkan berkata, beliau akan keluar daripada PKR kerana tidak bersetuju dengan Abdul Khalid, termasuk cara menteri besar itu mentadbir Selangor.

Abdul Khalid pula dilaporkan berkata Manikavasagam bebas untuk berbuat demikian. Beliau juga tidak berminat untuk berjumpa Mike atau merayunya menimbang semula keputusan tersebut.

Menteri besar itu kemudiannya menafikan pernah berkata demikian.

Beliau bagaimanapun menafikan mempunyai perselisihan peribadi Abdul Khalid.

"Tidak ada perselisihan faham dengan Tan Sri Khalid kerana saya bawa isu masyarakat. Boleh jumpa (beliau) bila-bila masa," katanya.

Manikavasagam menambah, nasibnya dalam PKR akan ditentukan selepas beliau berbincang dengan penasihat parti Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim beberapa minggu lagi.

"Keluar parti? Tunggulah. Kena bincang dengan Anwar. Kena bincang dengan beliau dulu," katanya.

Beliau akan terus mengekalkan jawatan ahli parlimen walaupun disingkirkan daripada PKR, tambahnya.

Anwar dan presiden PKR Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail sekarang berada di luar negara dan dijangka pulang 6 Januari ini, sementara Manikavasagam pula akan ke India antara 5 hingga 15 Januari.

Perjumpaan dengan Anwar itu antaranya untuk berbincang "beberapa perkara penting di Selangor" dan juga negeri-negeri yang dikuasai negeri Pakatan Rakyat.

Isu-isu yang beliau tidak berpuas hati termasuklah pelantikan ketua kampung Melayu di sebuah taman yang majoritinya penduduknya berketurunan India dan kemerosotan jualan akibat pemindahan stesen bas lama Klang ke terminal baru di Jalan Meru.

Di sidang media yang sama, beliau turut melahirkan rasa kecewa dengan kenyataan-kenyataan pemimpin Pakatan Rakyat termasuk Presiden PAS Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang dan Pengerusi DAP Karpal Singh yang menggesa beliau keluar parti.

"Semua itu menyakitkan hati. Sedangkan mereka tidak tahu pendirian saya," kata Mike lagi.

Mengulas dakwaan beliau bakal menyertai MIC, Manikavasagam menjelaskan beberapa pemimpinnya pernah mengajak beliau untuk menyertai parti tersebut.

Bagaimanapun, katanya, setakat ini beliau tidak berhasrat untuk menyertai sebarang parti termasuk Barisan Progresif India (IPF), Parti Progresif Rakyat (PPP) dan Parti Bersatu India Malaysia (MUIP).

Mike mendakwa kira-kira 300 hingga 400 penyokongnya terutama di Johor menunggu isyarat lanjut daripadanya.

Tambahnya, beliau juga mendakwakan mendapat sokongan di beberapa buah negeri seperti Pulau Pinang, Perak, Negeri Sembilan dan Melaka.

And the Newsmaker of 2008 is...

Reactions: 
The signs first surfaced late last year, but the intelligence reports, the alarming graphs and the ground readings were ignored.

Was it complacency or sheer arrogance that led the authorities to embark on a mission of vilification, arrests and charges in court?

The ‘shock and awe’ tactics did not work. Out of this, instead, grew the courage of convictions that was expressed in the outpouring of disgust which swept away decades of fear, differences and indifference.

For thinking the unthinkable and daring to achieve it, Malaysiakini proudly declares that its Newsmaker of the Year is...

...the rakyat!

newsmaker 2008 cartoonWe salute the silent majority which was sufficiently rankled to find its voice especially in cyberspace, a frontier which dissenters exploited to maximum benefit.

Blogs mushroomed - including that of the never-been-silent former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad. He kept up a constant bombardment of successor Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, his ambitious son-in-law Khairy Jamaluddin and members of the Fourth Floor.

Ordinary people - as never before - huddled in desperate contemplation of a nation falling apart on the political, economic and social fronts.

They found unity in the diversity - everyone was pissed off but for different reasons, and there was no dearth of deep-seated, festering complaints:
  • the spike in fuel prices and knock-on effects on the cost of living, while ministers continued to enjoy all-expenses paid holidays;
  • the perceived unfairness to non-Muslims caught up in cases of conversion to Islam;
  • the recurring episodes of crass, even crude, remarks in Parliament by those elected to represent the people;
  • the perceived persecution of the Catholic community over the use of ‘Allah’ to mean ‘God’ in the Bahasa Malaysia version of their newsletter, which almost lost its publishing licence, and the confiscation of Bibles;
  • the continuing fallout from rhetoric over ‘Malay supremacy’, bumiputera rights, racist remarks and racially-divisive politics;
  • the litany of grievances in Sabah, where locals alleged they were in danger of becoming strangers in their own land because of ‘favoured’ immigrants; and
  • the constant leakages from the national coffer, from the disappearance of savings in reduced fuel subsidies to the unholy haste to invest in indelible ink that could not be used.
The hammer-blows fell with telling accuracy on a ‘selfish, heartless, arrogant, ineffective, greedy and inconsiderate’ BN government led by the sleep-deprived Abdullah.

And still Abdullah was oblivious to the shift in sentiments - perhaps he believed a little too much in his pantang dicabar brand of governance and politics.

The final nail was supplied by Barisan Nasional component parties themselves, which imploded over a squabble for plum seats ahead of the general election on March 8.

All this while, the opposition front avoided pitfalls of the past and presented the public with a plausible alternative. Their veterans and newbies drew mammoth crowds to their ceramah nationwide, coaxing voters to shed inhibitions and embrace a ‘new dawn’.

The Year Of The Rakyat

As with the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) and the Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih) in 2007, the general election of March 8, 2008 stamped the arrival of a new force in Malaysia.

In this, the Year of the Rakyat, Malaysians were shaken awake from deep slumber and kicked out of their comfort zone to make a conscious choice that, in turn, has shaken up the status quo.

YOU, the defiant, threw out the rotten, the corrupt and the inept in an election that was nothing short of inspiring.

YOU, the fearless, continued to press for reform and speak up against discrimination and injustice.

YOU, the marginalised, showed up with a six-year-old’s handwritten letters, teddy bears and roses to appeal to the better nature of those who have locked up husbands and fathers. When outlawed, you have refused to disappear.

YOU, the outraged, have turned up - some with young children - at weekly protests and candlelight vigils against the Internal Security Act, risking arrest in the process.

YOU, the supportive, wore T-shirts declaring ‘I’m with RPK’, paraded these before watchful eyes, and stood with blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin in his darkest moments of captivity.

YOU, the imaginative, gate-crashed the biggest party of the year - the Umno ministers’ Hari Raya ‘open house’ - to take your message to the highest leaders of the land.

YOU, the fed-up, protested the hike in fuel prices in your thousands and later, the fatwa against tomboys, albeit in a smaller number.

YOU, the brave, stood against bulldozers and barricades for days on end, resisting the demand to pay toll charges.

YOU, the indefatigable, cycled for 16 days from north and south to Kuala Lumpur, campaigning for attention to unresolved issues and impending concerns, in the face of police harassment to the last.YOU have all sent out the unequivocal message that you are no longer spectators, but movers and shakers of the nation.

Yes, YOU are indeed worthy recipients of the Newsmaker of the Year award.
